Takedown by Rich Wallace
This is book #8 in the Winning Season series. They all are on order at the OMS media center and should arrive in time for September. Donald is a 7th grader who, jealous of his friends who do well in sports, decides to go our for wrestling. He's never wrestled before, but he wants to be good at it right from the start. Of course, he has to take some time to learn the sport and he needs to work hard before he can win a match. This book is all action (no real character development and not much plot). If you like sports and you want a book that's not too hard to read, this series might be for you. Each book is about a different sport. Recommended for 6th and 7th grade guys especially.
